A Houston woman was killed when her Chevrolet Spark car struck the back of a tractor trailer Sunday afternoon on U.S. 81/287 south of Alvord, according to Department of Public Safety spokesman Ricky Hunter.

Hunter said preliminary investigation indicates the driver of the Chevy, identified as 36-year-old Tiffany Ann Rosario, was traveling south on U.S. 81/287 and attempted to pass another vehicle on the shoulder of the roadway when she collided with the tractor trailer. The impact wedged Rosario’s car underneath the tractor trailer, collapsing a majority of the vehicle.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The occupant of the tractor trailer was not injured. The accident snarled traffic southbound on U.S. 81/287 for several hours Sunday afternoon as crews worked to clean up the wreckage.
